Each year, Peter Cocking’s fourth-year Advanced Typography class completes their semester by creating an “instant museum”: a pop-up installation of exhibits that use typography to communicate something important about typography.

This year, students are delving into a wide array of topics with dynamic, interactive displays that range from the history of wood type to the evolution of Chinese characters; from typographic signifiers in heavy metal logos to the role of typography in the packaging and marketing of pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and candy; from the relationship between the human body and typographic form to the future of variable type on-screen - and so much more.

Join us! The Dec. 10 opening event begins with a short presentation from each student in Rennie Hall; the exhibition will continue on display until Dec. 13 at the Michael O'Brian Exhibition Commons at ECU.
